    Dropped my drawings into the fabricator today, He should be finished by tomorrow, I got him to make me an internal frame from angle aluminium to save me some work :) His prices are very reasonable, it was only 15 euro for the shell!

    I think my parts have finally shipped too so I should have them early next week \o/

    HAHAHA! Legend!

    Don't do any cutting unless you feel 100%. I mean, it sounds good "I did this when I was pissed (and/or hungover) but it's always different the next day. ;)

    Thanks for the encouragement guys :)

    Clamped frame

    Frame riveted together, its surprisingly sturdy!

    Thats about it... There was lots of measuring and poking and prodding and cutting to get it square and get everything lined up so I didnt get a lot done...

    I may have to scrap the sliding front idea, the front panel I got from the fabricator isnt great and the way the case is coming together it will be hard to implement the slide mechanism, I think im going to return to the original plan of the whole front covered in perforated steel...

    So much work to be done still! Wiring from PSU to rear, Switches, Mount PSU, mount fans and then trying to route all my cables tidily in such a tiny space... Its going to be a fun week!

    Lets just hope the next photo in the Log isnt of me kicking the case around the garden :D

    That's a small case, but it looks like a lot of fun to make :) Good luck with the rest of it.

    The power supply is a good choice btw :)
